Post #1,300, And On Friday To Boot

Posted by on Jun 1, 2012

What a great way to end the weekend, with a monument post. This is #1,300, and it took me just over 5 months to get there. I had said I was going to slow myself down some, and based on what’s occurred I can’t see me writing 300 posts this year. Still, I’m on pace for 240 posts on the year, and that’s still saying something, though I’m not holding myself to that number. Whether it’ll end up higher or lower… well, we’ll see.

It’s been an odd last 5 months since we reached #1,200. It’s a period where my traffic dropped drastically because of Google; that’s just how it goes, and of course if you saw yesterday’s post you know how I feel about some of this. It’s a period where only two posts written in it made the top 10 viewed, those being the posts about the Smush-It issue (which was written just a month ago so that’s pretty good) and the one about my biggest issues with social media. It’s a period where I did what I said I was going to do, that being to write my Black Web Friday series and the prediction that traffic wouldn’t support it; man, I hate being correct about that.

It’s a period where I created a custom header for the site, which I like but just can’t seem to get it to want to stay in place. It was a period where most of the posts were on blogging and social media again, but I took some strides forward in talking about marketing, real marketing, which isn’t easy. And it was a period where I wrote some nice motivational posts, something I think we can never get enough of.

That’s what I’ve done. What’s coming? Truthfully, I have no idea. Strange as this sounds, as I write this I really don’t know what’s upcoming here or anywhere else. I’m close to reaching my 1,000th post on my business blog, I just passed #600 on my finance blog, and I’ve still yet to hit 100 posts on either of my other two blogs. Frankly, a part of me is thinking that I need to start concentrating on business as much as I’ve been concentrating on blogging.

This means I could slow down across the board or continue as I’m going and find a business focus that brings in more income so I can keep blogging as much as I want to. The one thing you don’t have to worry about is that I will stop blogging; I still have too much to say and too much to share.

I hope you stick with me as I enter this next phase of exploration. I think this next 5 months is going to bring great strides; that is, if I can get beyond these Google updates and get some of my traffic back. Now there’s a subject I hope I don’t have to talk about in the next 100 posts.

Congrats for writing 1300 awesome posts in a time of 5 months. Since your blog is much informative, hats off

Thanks Shipra, but actually I only wrote the last 100 in 5 months. I mean, if I’d written 1,300 posts in 5 months I don’t think I’d have ever slept! lol

Way to go Mitch. I just had a look to see how much I’ve posted and my last post only came to 518 so I’ve a long way to go before I catch up with you. 馃槈

Of course you know I’m going to stick with you, if only to point out those extremely rare typos 馃榾

Thanks Sire; LOL! At least we both know mine are only typos. But you still have a better following than I do so you certainly don’t have to worry about catching up with me in any way.

June 2nd, 2012 | 1:19 AM

I think many bloggers have to try to catch up with you. 1300 is serious number and you are writing all your posts on this blog. Keep the good content coming, Mitch.

Thanks Carl. Well, I wrote almost all of them; there’s those 14 guest posts I’ve had here. 馃檪

June 2nd, 2012 | 11:13 PM

You have definitely done a good job, Mitch. I was running even guest blogging content on one of my projects and honestly, I don’t think that I’ve had 300 articles since the beginning of the year.

Hey Mitch that is awesome you reached 1,300. In such a short time. I feel bad because I am no where near that.
